One thing that we expect from God is his universality. God is not confined to a place neither does he demand people to geolocate to his place. This concept is called “GOD WITH US”. His omnipresence is one attribute that makes him God. You can click here to read the previous articles of this series. In this article, we will examine who is the real Omnipresent God. Jesus or Allah?
Words are cheap if it is not backed by actions. Sahih Muslim tells us that Allah will have to come to the lowest of heavens to listen to the prayers of Muslims. He cannot sit on his so-called high throne and listen.
Our Lord, the Blessed and the Exalted descends every night to the lowest heaven when one-third of the latter part of the night is left and says: Who supplicates Me so that I may answer him? Who asks Me so that I may give to him? Who asks Me forgiveness so that I may forgive him?Sahih Muslim 758a
This incident has a different scientific twist as well. Click here to read the scientific problem faced by Allah.
The Allah of Islam has other issues too. He cannot listen to prayers when a Woman, a Donkey or a Dog passes by the person offering prayers.
The things which annul the prayers were mentioned before me. They said, “Prayer is annulled by a dog, a donkey and a woman (if they pass in front of the praying people).” I said, “You have made us (i.e. women) dogs. I saw the Prophet (ﷺ) praying while I used to lie in my bed between him and the Qibla. Whenever I was in need of something, I would slip away. for I disliked to face him.”Sahih Bukhari 511
This Allah is so Mysterious that he is the exact image of Muhammad. The Limitations of Muhammad is clearly seen in Allah. There is absolutely no evidence in the Quran where Allah heard the prayers of his devotees and saved them from a difficult situation. Reading through the Quran and Hadiths always gives us a picture of a Servant Allah to the Puppet Master Muhammad. This weird behaviour of Allah to please Muhammad did not escape the eyes of Aisha (Sahih Bukhari 4788).
Consider some words of Jesus in which he promises to hear and answer the prayers made in his name.
And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.John 14:13
In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.John 16:23
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”Matt 18:20
These are not empty words. Jesus proved his Omnipresence even when he was incarnated as a Human. Let me quote one incident that happened when he was on this earth.
22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, 24 and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.
25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.
27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”
29 “Come,” he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”
31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”Matt 14:22-33
Not only that he is Omnipresent. He can control the wind and the waves and also do the impossible by walking on water to save his disciples. There are many more incidents in the bible in which Jesus heard the prayers of his people and delivered them, proving that he is the Living God. Jesus is Omnipresent, indeed.
As usual, it is time for us to update the comparison chart between Jesus and Allah. Again Allah fails miserably whereas Jesus stands the test of the True God. Jesus answers Prayers and he is Omnipresent. He is not hindered by a Woman, Donkey or Dog as Allah is. He hears in the worst of your situations.
|Jesus Christ||Allah and Muhammad|
|Omnipotent- Created Matter.||Helpless - even to solve basic problem of hunger.|
|Omniscient - Knows all things. Seen and Unseen||Clueless- Keeps changing the word (Sura 2:106)|
|Gives Life - Created Eyes of the Blind, Raises up dead people||Takes Lives of others-Mocks and curses the blind., Never able to give life to others.|
|Completed the Mission - Salvation became a reality||A Failure-Died in utter disappointment|
|Status after Death-Buried, Resurrected after 3 days, lived with the Apostles for 40 days and then Ascended to the Throne of God||Status after Death-Remain Buried awaiting Judgement by Jesus to be condemned to hell|
|Physical Testimony-Empty Tomb in Jerusalem testifies his Immortality to the World||Physical Testimony-The Tomb with Muhammad's body in Medina testifies his Mortality to the World|
|The Power of Resurrection- Jesus resurrected himself because he is God. John 10:17-18||Sting of Sin- Captured by Death Awaiting the resurrection of the UNJUST. Allah does not have resurrection power|
|Jesus is Omnipresent God. He hears and answers prayers.||Allah was a fiction of Muhammad's Imagination. He does not hear prayers to answer it.|
